“It was a chance to completely change the clubbing experience – a bigger, darker, dirtier transformation.”
After four years of epic parties, Sydney farewelled its famous Ibiza-inspired Pacha club night in 2017. The city was ready to take things up a notch. So when the Ivy invited Ministry of Sound to take up residency, it was a chance to completely change the clubbing experience – a bigger, darker, dirtier transformation.
The creative team behind Pacha took on the full-blown production that became the Sydney Ministry of Sound, starting with the iconic club brand’s most important quality: a huge sound system upgrade. But it didn’t end there.
The ceilings were lowered, an all-weather roof was installed, and all five rooms were decked out with custom staging, lights and video design; everything needed to achieve the heavy club vibe Ministry of Sound is known for.
The cherry on top was the new entrance. Clubbers begin their Saturday night weaving through a fire escape tunnel, designed in the mesmerising immersive patterns of artist Sam Songailo, before stepping out into the heaving Ministry of Sound crowd.
